New special mod:
As my little 6R turned 5 this Christmas, I decided to gift my 6R a special gift.
Part no: 5TA 419 091 R
... MQB steering wheel with paddle shifters & heating.
I bought the wheel from smg_shardul, many thanks to him.
First I had thought of buying steering wheel with cruise buttons to retrofit CC emulator along, but I had to sacrifice mute button for that. It's a shame that VW has omitted important mute button recently on new steering wheels.
Mute button is so important for me so that I sacrificed CC buttons on wheel, which I already have on left stalk.
I also circumcised the heating connector of new wheel
Otherwise also our steering wheel gets hot in our climatic conditions.
The back lighting of buttons is not red but instead white.. not exactly white but, I don't know what is the exact colour, but I liked it very much..milkish white with bit of Lavender
Initially I had thought of changing the leds to red, but this soothing white backlight has got over my red obsessed brain.
Moreover, I observed that the white backlight of new steering wheel somehow matches with cluster white illumination. Makes sense
Master Ciclo has also kept white backlight.. might be for the same reason viewtopic.php?p=574543#p574543
I did drive manually with paddles for few rides, I should say that my manual driving skills suck, DSG has spoiled me forever.
